Glazed Apple Cookies

My parents just got into town for the night. They are going to stay with us through the weekend and I thought it would be the perfect time to test out a new cookie recipe on them. This is another recipe that I found stuck in my folder and decided to type up the other day. I'm not sure where I got it from, but I'm sure glad I kept it. It is the PERFECT cookie for Fall. The batter was really dark and thick, but once I baked them it turned a beautiful golden color. The cookie came out nice and soft, just the way I like, and the spices gave it a wonderful flavor. I will definitely be making these again. Do you have a favorite cookie recipe that you like to make during certain seasons? Feel free to share :) My family is already asking for Pumpkin Chip cookies. I make those every year for Thanksgiving and they go fast.

Glazed Apple Cookies

1/2 c. margarine, melted
1 c. firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1 egg, beaten
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 c. milk
2 c. peeled and chopped Granny Smith apples

1 c. powdered sugar
1 Tbsp. margarine, melted
2 Tbsp. milk
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 400˚. Beat margarine and brown sugar until creamy. Add salt, cinnamon, cloves and egg, mixing well. Sift together flour and baking soda; add to butter mixture with 1/4 c. milk; stirring well. Gently stir in chopped apples. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls 2" apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10 minutes or until firm when touched. Cool slightly on cookie sheets before removing to wire rack to cool completely. Combine the glaze ingredients and mix until smooth and creamy. Drizzle over cooled cookies.
